This Old Truck Is Turned Into A Guesthouse Unlike Any Other3m04s

This Old Truck Is Turned Into A Guesthouse Unlike Any Other

If you are into thrifting and love having a house on wheels, then this is the project for you! A Hungarian company by the name of Mòkus Valley took some of Hungary’s old Csepel trucks to create some remarkable lodgings! What was once a truck for industrial use has now been upgraded with a porch, a sleeping and dining area and a kitchen, for your guests’ - or your own! - personal pleasure. According to the company’s website, the Csepellina, as they call it, “is a nostalgic old truck that has been converted into a unique comfortable guesthouse. Situated next to a private pond with regular visits of kingfisher birds and grazing sheep. “You enter the house from a cozy private terrace with hammock, chairs and a pond and forest view. The interior is made of natural logs with an industrial detail. Comfortable bed with terrace/pond view, lounge seats, fully equipped kitchen, breakfast area, bathroom, toilet, wood-burning stove, wifi, etc. Don’t know about you, but we can definitely see ourselves having our morning coffee on the terrace, beneath the willow tree. It looks so whimsical and adventurous, both inside and outside. We imagine sipping on a glass of wine, while the wood cracks in the stove...so cozy! Talk about a transformation! The old Csepel truck was stripped and transformed into this beautiful home. The results are stunning, natural wood throughout, recycled materials and amazing attention to detail. Make this one of the most beautiful tiny homes we have seen.

Ghost village of Greece as seen by drone2m33s

Ghost village of Greece as seen by drone

Undeveloped stone houses, old temples, remnants of another era that testify that once, this village was full of life. The old village of Plagia is located on the north-west side of Xiromeros, opposite Lefkada Island. Its inhabitants abandoned it after the 1966 earthquake and landslides, and relocated to the new Plagia village. The houses that you will see in the video below were similarly architectural with the houses in the villages of Lefkada. It is worth noting that such houses aren't met in the area, which makes us think that this particular village could be a model traditional settlement, very close to the sea. The area is characterized by its beautiful nature. Buds, figs and many almonds are scattered between the ruins.

There's a toilet themed restaurant in Taiwan and it's quite disturbing

Would you eat dinner sitting on the toilet? Ever dreamed of drinking from a urinal or sipping a hot chocolate from a toilet shaped mug? You can do this and more at the quirky Modern Toilet Restaurant in Taipei, Taiwan's vibrant capital city. The menu here is anything but subtle - with some seriously questionable items to choose from. All food is toilet themed and comes out shaped like scarily real turns, be it the bread, the ice-cream or the meatballs with a very disturbing yellow sauce for extra measure! Would you eat here?

Slauerhoff Bridge In The Netherlands Is Not Your Everyday Bridge 6m36s

Slauerhoff Bridge In The Netherlands Is Not Your Everyday Bridge

The Slauerhoffbrug (or Slauerhoff Bridge) is a fully automatic bascule bridge in the city of Leeuwarden in the Netherlands, sometimes called a “tail bridge”. Also affectionately called the “Flying Drawbridge”, it uses two arms to swing a section of road in and out of place within the road, in order to allow water traffic to quickly pass, while stalling the road and bike traffic briefly. Named after the writer and poet J. Slauerhoff, the underside of the Flying Drawbridge is painted in the colors of the coat of arms and flag of Leeuwarden: blue and yellow. The Netherlands have loads of canals, which of course means loads of bridges. Each location has a different situation about it, which requires an innovative design to be implemented. Drawbridges have always been interesting to designers and they always look for new ways to get the bikes, cars and boats to cross safely, without interfering with each other. The Slauerhoff bridge was designed and built by a company called Van Driel Mechatronica in 2000 over the Harlinger Vaart River. Seeing how the Netherlands have very frequent traffic on the water, the bridge is raised and lowered around 10 times a day. There has to be some serious engineering going on, to have that huge piece of road to hang about the ground like that, but we have to admit, it still looks brilliant!

Incredible power of Tropical Storm Nate changes Kittiwake wreck forever1m50s

Incredible power of Tropical Storm Nate changes Kittiwake wreck forever

The USS Kittiwake is one of the best-known wreck dives in the Caribbean, if not the world. Its convenient location, just off Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman, and shallow depths make it a popular site among scuba divers as well as snorkelers and freedivers. Brent and Elsa pictured in this video traveled to Grand Cayman in 2017 for a dive vacation and enjoyed diving the then upright wreck. The USS Kittiwake is a Chanticleer-class submarine rescue ship that served as an Auxiliary Submarine Rescue vessel (ASR-13) with the 6th Submarine Squadron. On January 5, 2011 - a decade after the Cayman Island Tourism Association first dreamed of adding a new wreck - the Kittiwake finally sank upright beneath the waves off the coast of Grand Cayman and a new artificial reef was born. When Tropical Storm Nate hit Grand Cayman October 6,2017, the Kittiwake wreck would be changed forever. On October 9, divers discovered that the wreck had been toppled on its port side. After extensive inspections of near by reefs as well as the integrity of the wreck, it was once again opened to recreational divers. Some may have thought this incident would ruin the artificial reef for divers, but many see it as a completely new wreck.

This is the perfect way to warm yourself up in the cold winter days, and if you can't go there, then at least you can enjoy this majestic drone footage. It captures the beauty of this Greek tourist destination perfectly! Maybe if you go there you can spot a famous actor or athlete enjoying the good weather on the beach, as Greece is known to attract many members of the elite around the world.

Drone Captures Gate To The Holy Mount Athos In Greece2m30s

Drone Captures Gate To The Holy Mount Athos In Greece

On the top of the Mount Athos peninsula and at a distance of 120km away from the airport of Thessaloniki lies Ouranoupolis, the Gate of Mount Athos. Ouranoupolis is a divine landscape, combining mountainous and sea beauties, promising unforgettable holidays, especially for the travelers seeking the relaxation, away from the stress of the town. The village seems to be a serene portrait which welcomes the pilgrims and prepares them for their spiritual journey to Mount Athos. Besides that Ouranoupolis means in Greek, the city of the heaven, the city who drives you up to heaven... Its visitors are welcomed by the Tower of Andronikos, the “alert protector” of the city for centuries, built in 1344 by the monastery Vatopediou as a protection from the pirates. In front of the tower lies the port, the gate of Mount Athos, where either the ferry boats travel to the monasteries or cruise around the peninsula at a distance of 500m from the beach. In Ouranoupolis the visitors apart from the hospitality and the friendly spirit of the residents, have the unique chance to savor fresh fish caught in the Mount Athos Golf in traditional fish taverns, to relax in pleasant cafes or bars drinking cocktails on the beach watching the sunset. During the day the activities give unique opportunities for swimming or fishing at exotic beaches across Ouranoupolis, on the small isles, which can be visited either by small fishing boats or small speedboats. There are ferry boats which daily set off from the harbor for the Mount Athos cruise. Diving, sea sports, cars and motorbikes for rent are being at the disposal of the visitors. Ouranoupolis is surrounded by a wonderful forest which is being offered for walks and exploration, viewing to the village and Mount Athos. Inevitably Ouranoupolis is the last stop for all pilgrims who wish to visit Mount Athos since they have to collect early in the morning the Diamonitirio, a written authorization and the ticket for the ferry boat.

Remote Greek village captured by drone3m04s

Remote Greek village captured by drone

The Antia villagers speak a unique language of whistles, in which each tone of whistling corresponds to a letter of the alphabet. By putting whistles of different tones in order, they form words. This way, they can talk and understand each other simply by whistling. Children learn the language at the age of 5 or 6. The interesting custom – which also appears in the nearby villages of Simikouki and Evangelismos – dates back to the times of ancient Greece. Some speculate that the residents of Antia got the language skills from the Persian soldiers who were guarding Greek prisoners in the Karystos area. After their defeat in the Battle of Salamis, the Persian army left the guards of Karystos behind, and they fled to the highlands around Antia to hide. There they mixed in with the local population and were assimilated by them. Another theory wants the Antia villagers to be of Doric origin, because they don’t speak the arvanitika dialect like the surrounding populations. A lesser known theory wants the fathers of the language of whistles to be residents Ainos in Thrace, who moved to the area in 1469 as prisoners of the Venetians. The “sfyria” language was discovered by mass media in March 1969, when a group of rescuers was searching for the remains of a missing pilot whose plane had crashed in the ‘Ochi’ mountain area. Although the remaining villagers are still whistling on Antia, its population has shrunk and the area is inhabited by elderly that are slowly dying. The villagers say that they would like to see their whistling language tradition continuing, but their kids mostly have left the village and very few know how to whistle.

Enjoy a flight over the the New Potidea Canal in Halkidiki Greece, where the pine trees reach the turquoise waters and boats are mooring under the houses. It is the canal that separates the first leg of Halkidiki in two. It is unknown exactly when it was opened, but certainly it existed before the 1st century AD. The work was completed, probably by Cassander 300-400 years earlier and gets its current form recently, between 1935 and 1937.
